The 2020–2021 Indian farmers' protest is a continuing protest against three farm acts that were passed by the Parliament of India in September 2020. During the ongoing protest, 300 protestors have lost their lives. 

Farmer unions and their embodiments have urged that the laws be abolished and have stated that they will not accept a settlement.Farmer heads have welcomed the Supreme Court of India stay order on the implementation of the farm laws but denied the committee appointed by the Supreme Court.Farmer leaders have also declined a government proposition, dated 21 January 2021, of hanging the laws for 18 months. Eleven rounds of discussions have taken place between the central government and farmers represented by the farm unions between 14 October 2020 and 22 January 2021; all were indecisive.On 3 February, farmer leaders were apprised of intensifying the protest to ousting the government if the farm laws were not repealed. However, the stay order on the implementation of the farm laws continues in effect as of 29 January and the Supreme Court-appointed panel continues with its responsibilities related to the farm laws and has asked for suggestions from the public before 20 February 2021.
